Hand Drawn Type With a Twist

I guess this is a theme today – daily illustration projects.

Daily Dishonesty is a blog by New York designer Lauren Hom. She puts her own spin on hand drawn type by illustrating little white lies. Enjoy.

Windows of New York

Windows of New York is a project by graphic designer José Guizar. Such a simple idea and so beautifully executed. Check out José’s other work as well. I’m especially a fan of his Lucha Libre beer.

A little Friday humor for all of you graphic designers out there, via

The guys over at Wander Blog decided to start this postcard project that asked illustrators to imagine a postcard from everywhere and nowhere at once. Here are a few of my favorites. Go check out their site to see more and download the art as an iPhone or iPad background.

Craig Redman is an Australian born artist based in NYC, and is perhaps most famous for being the man behind Darcel. His latest endeavor, in conjunction with Turkish Airlines, is an ad campaign called “Passenger Portraits“. Using his highly stylized illustration style, Redman has created a series of 12 celebrity portraits that will be displayed all over the world. Not only is this simple, iconic style an innovative way to use celebrities in advertising, it also translates seamlessly across cultures.

Here are a few of his other celebrity portraits. The predecessors, if you will, to the “Passenger Portraits” series.


East of Eden is one of my very favorite classics. One that I was happy to discover is a part of Kathryn Macnaughton’s series of Steinbeck cover art for Penguin Books UK. Kathryn is a Toronto based illustrator/graphic designer who combines shapes, photos and illustration to create beautiful work.

I’ve been reading, or rereading a bunch of the classics lately. In doing so, I stumbled across these beautifully illustrated book covers by Mikey Burton. They’re a box set that he designed as part of his theses at Kent State. As far as I can tell, the set “Rest, Relax, Read” is not available for purchase. Bummer! You can however purchase the cover art on a t-shirt, from the guys over at Out of Print. You can also read a little more about Mikey in the interview that FaceoutBooks did with him.

Lan Truong is an illustrator and graphic designer for Bust Magazine. She has such a fun illustration style that I had to put it up here. Linear and clean. I love it.
